Regulations surrounding nicotine pouches vary across different countries worldwide, with some countries imposing less stringent regulations on these products compared to traditional tobacco items. This disparity can be observed in Australia, where stringent regulations and restrictions are placed on most tobacco products. However, nicotine pouches, classified as unregistered nicotine products, have been available for purchase in the country. Similarly, in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), where many tobacco products are banned or subject to strict regulations, nicotine pouches have remained relatively unregulated, thus allowing their availability to consumers.

The sales of tobacco-free alternative products, including nicotine pouches, are being driven by the decline in the percentage of daily cigarette users. Swedish Match, a leading manufacturer, reported a significant increase in the shipment of its nicotine pouch brand "ZYN." In 2021, the company shipped 173.9 million cans, compared to 114.1 million cans in 2020. This growth can be attributed to increased store velocities and wider availability, with "ZYN" being sold in over 120,000 stores in the U.S. in 2021. The market has experienced intense competition as major cigarette manufacturers and other players expanded their presence and product portfolios in North America, often accompanied by promotional discount activities aimed at attracting customers.
